Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“That’s great.” Duan Ling Tian nodded in satisfaction when he found out Martial Emperor Shi Qi, the owner of Lost Stone Forest, would be coming as well. Meanwhile, the cold gleam in the depth of his eyes intensified as though he would devour anyone who dared to come near him.
“What’s wrong? Brother Ling Tian, is there enmity between you and Martial Emperor Shi Qi?” Yang Hui could not help but ask when he noticed something was not quite right with Duan Ling Tian’s expression.
“Yes.” Duan Ling Tian nodded.
Yang Hui did not continue to ask about the matter. He realized Duan Ling Tian was unwilling to talk about it further when he did not continue to speak after he nodded.
However, he could not help but remind him, “Brother Ling Tian… That Martial Emperor Shi Qi has broken through to the Fourth Level Martial Emperor Stage earlier than I did. Don’t underestimate his ability.”
“Fourth Level Martial Emperor Stage…” Duan Ling Tian mumbled softly. His expression remained unchanged, but his heart could not help but sink.
Although he had recalled what happened at Lost Stone Forest, the memory of the time when he used his power after the devilification and the Martial Emperor’s ability were still a blur in his mind.
After listening to Yang Hui, he gained a rough understanding of Martial Emperor Shi Qi.
Yang Hui continued to lead the way as Duan Ling Tian muttered to himself.
During Ling Xuan Peak’s Selection of the Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers, his cultivation base had successfully broken through to the Sixth Level Martial Monarch Stage.
Naturally, it was all thanks to the Rebirth Pill and the effect of construction after the destruction that he had broken through so quickly.
Moreover, the elevation of his ability was not limited to his cultivation base alone.
The Fused Profundity and Sword Profundity that he had comprehended had a major elevation too.
According to his estimation, the rapid elevation of his two Profundities should be caused by the Soul Remnant Energy from the Devilseal Tablet that suppressed his soul.
His broken soul was a blessing in disguise. Due to that, he had obtained an elevation in his Profundities and changes that could not be explained.
A few months had passed since the Selection of the Martial Emperor’s disciples and followers in Ling Xuan Peak. Although they had been traveling, Duan Ling Tian did not forget to cultivate.
Moreover, Martial Emperor Ling Xuan, Yang Hui, carried Duan Ling Tian and the other nine with his energy so Duan Ling Tian did not need to expend any effort at all.
Therefore, his cultivation base had successfully broken through to the Ninth Level Martial Monarch Stage!
On the other hand, he managed to raise his Fused Profundity and Sword Profundity to the fifth level.
His Sword Profundity had finally caught up with his Fused Profundity!
It was all due to the Sword Dao Duan Ling Tian had memorized. The Sword Dao came from the word ‘Sword’ that he found in his hometown.
The word was left behind by a man who called himself a Sword Saint.
When Duan Ling Tian was thinking about his current ability, something flashed in his mind, and a name suddenly appeared in his mind. ‘Feng Qing Yang!’
It was the name of the man who called himself a Sword Saint.
Memories related to the word ‘Sword’ was flashing in his mind at the moment.
‘I was wondering why my Sword Profundity rose so quickly. It even caught up with my Fused Profundity… As it turns out, it’s because of the word ‘Sword’.’ Duan Ling Tian was in a good mood when he recalled this.
He closed his eyes again.
He knew very well that his current ability was far behind Martial Emperor Shi Qi who was at the Fourth Level Martial Emperor Stage. He needed to quickly raise his ability in order to defeat Martial Emperor Shi Qi.
Soon after, he immersed himself in cultivation again. He could not let any opportunity to cultivate slip away.

As Duan Ling Tian cultivated, they were getting closer and closer to the Hidden Fog Island under Yang Hui’s lead.
The Hidden Fog Island was in the Oversea Saint Island. Many Martial Emperor and Demon Emperor powerhouses from Cloud Continent would be coming to the Hidden Fog Island.
These Martial Emperor and Demon Emperor powerhouses’ abilities were on par with those famous Martial Emperor and Demon Emperor powerhouses on Cloud Continent.
The three most powerful people on Hidden Fog Island were the three Island Masters of Hidden Fog Island.
The three of them managed the Hidden Fog Island. They had many disciples under them. Although they did not categorize them as disciples or followers, they had their own ranking system.
There were the core disciples, inner island disciples, and outer island disciples.
The three types of Hidden Fog Island’s disciples received different treatments as well.
The Hidden Fog Martial Competition was organized by the Hidden Fog Island.
Apart from inviting the disciples under Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors from Cloud Continent, the outstanding disciples of Hidden Fog Island would participate in the martial competition as well.
At that time, powerhouses from the Hidden Fog Island and Cloud Continent below the age of seventy would engage in an intense competition.
At this moment, there were exactly three months left before the Hidden Fog Martial Competition began.
However, there was already a crowd on the Hidden Fog Island.
The Martial Emperor and Demon Emperor powerhouses who left Cloud Continent early had already arrived at the Hidden Fog Island with ten of their most outstanding disciples.
They were welcomed with great hospitality on the Hidden Fog Island.
These Martial Emperor and Demon Emperor powerhouses along with their disciples were arranged to stay in secluded mansions.
These mansions were scattered on the south of the Hidden Fog Island.
The south of Hidden Fog Island was filled with lush greeneries and fresh air. The Heaven and Earth Origin Energy there was concentrated, making it a great place for cultivation.
Most people who were enthusiastic about the Hidden Fog Island would know the island was rich in Origin Stones. They had a hidden reserve beneath the ground on the east side of the island. The cultivation environment on the Hidden Fog Island was affected by the Origin Stones reserve.
Therefore, the east side of Hidden Fog Island was the best cultivation place on the island.
It was also where the three Island Masters of Hidden Fog Island, core disciples, and inner island disciples cultivated.
Due to their low status, outer island disciples were not allowed in there.
The outer island disciples were scattered on the north and west side of Hidden Fog Island.
The sceneries around the Hidden Fog Island were beautiful with lush greeneries everywhere.
Contrary to the Hidden Fog Island’s surrounding, there was a vast and boundless city in the middle of the island. It was the only city on the Hidden Fog Island.
It was the Hidden Fog City!
Apart from some interims elders and elders from Hidden Fog Island, there were also some Martial Emperor powerhouses from Cloud Continent staying in the Hidden Fog City.
Apart from these people, Hidden Fog City was mostly occupied by the natives.
The natives were the descendants of the Hidden Fog Island’s disciples from when the island was founded.
The talented descendants would become the Hidden Fog Island’s disciples while those who were not would settle in Hidden Fog City, running small businesses.
Many years had passed, Hidden Fog City had developed tremendously, and it was now a bustling city.
On the south of Hidden Fog Island was where they welcomed their guests.
Martial Emperors and Demon Emperors from Cloud Continent with their ten most outstanding disciples would be arranged to stay here.
In the compound of a huge mansion on the south of Hidden Fog Island, a middle-aged man who was dressed casually was staring at two young ladies before him greedily. “Junior Sisters, I bet both of you have never been to Hidden Fog City since it’s your first time on Hidden Fog Island? How about we show you around?”
Another middle-aged man stood next to him with a similar expression on his face. He was staring at the two ladies before him with undisguised greed and desire. There was a hint of wickedness in the depth of their eyes.
Since they had lived on Hidden Fog Island for so many years, it was their first time seeing such beauties. They really felt their trip here was worthwhile.
The two ladies before them were so beautiful it took their breaths away. They almost lost their souls when they saw the two ladies.
Their appearance could be considered as peerless. They were extremely beautiful.
Although they were both outstanding, the two ladies had completely different charisma.
The one that was dressed in light purple had an alluring aura that seemed capable of making all men fall head over heels for her just like a red rose.
If the purple-clad lady was a red rose, the other lady would be a pure snow lotus. She looked like a pretty girl from a humble family. She was cute and naive.
Both of them had their own beauty.
“That’s right, Junior Sisters. With your Senior Brothers accompanying you, we can guarantee your trip to Hidden Fog City will be worth it,” the other middle-aged man said. He did not bother to conceal the desire in his eyes.
Although both of the middle-aged men were dressed casually, they each had a token on their belts made from an unknown material. The word ‘Inner’ was carved on the token.
If the natives on Hidden Fog Island were here, they would be able to recognize the token for what it was. It was the token that Hidden Fog Island’s inner island disciples carried with them to show their identity.
The abilities of Hidden Fog Island’s inner island disciples were similar to ordinary Martial Emperor’s disciples on Cloud Continent.
“We thank Senior Brothers’ kindness… But we’ve only just arrived so we’re planning to take a good and long rest. We don’t have any plans to go to the Hidden Fog City just yet,” the purple-clad young lady said slowly. She seemed polite, but there was a hint of loathing for the two middle-aged men in her beautiful eyes.
“If that’s the case, we’ll come back another day,” one of the middle-aged men said.
Soon after, the two middle-aged men turned around. As soon as they turned around, their faces immediately turned solemn.
They had been here ten times at least in recent times, but they were rejected every single time.
Due to that, their patience was wearing thin.
If those two ladies were ordinary women, they would not hesitate to use force if they could not convince them with words.
Unfortunately, the two ladies they saw were a Martial Emperor’s direct disciples from Cloud Continent. Although the two ladies’ abilities were lesser than theirs, they did not dare to be aggressive.
They would only do that if they were seeking death.
Both of them were just Hidden Fog Island’s inner island disciples. Even if they were killed by the Martial Emperor powerhouses from Cloud Continent, the three Island Masters of Hidden Fog Island would not do anything about it.
It would be a different story if they were Hidden Fog Island’s core disciples.
